    '"Not founded on anything" is the new "alternative facts."

    The term applies to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her misleading statements from the press briefing room podium. Now some prominent journalists are questioning whether she should remain in her job.
    Robert Mueller's report confirms that Sanders simply made it up when she said that "countless" FBI agents had told her that they were thankful Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey.
    Sanders made similar claims multiple times on two different days. Yet she told Mueller's office in an interview that she merely made a "slip of the tongue."

    According to Mueller's report, "she also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made 'in the heat of the moment' that was not founded on anything."'

    Interesting.

    Obviously, Trumpbots (i.e. extremist Trump supporters) think she is wonderful (as they support ANYTHING to do with Trump).

    But what do the other roughly 80+% of Americans think?

    She hasn’t given a press conference this year

    The fact that she no longer has credibility is moot

    So you're saying that an opinion is a criminal offense??????

    Shit.....every court decision is based on legal opinion.....not based on truth.

    Sarah Huckabee-Sanders lost her credibility the day she on-boarded at the Trump White House.

    I didn't know who she was before that time.

    I've believed very little of what she's spouted during her tenure there.

    I will never think on her again once she departs the White House.

    To cover The Creature's a$$, every person occupying that slot since January 20, 2017 has lied his-or-her a$$ off.

    Dog bites Man.

    This particular incumbent is pathetically ineffective in the role.

    No, you are saying it's wrong when Republicans do it.

    None of you sniveling bed wetters have the standing to judge anyone else's credibility. You're all a bunch of treasonous parasites that should be sent to North Korean gulags and fed to pigs.
